'Mockingbird Lane' trailer promises a new twist on 'The Munsters'
The Munsters are moving in, and just in time for Halloween.
NBC has debuted a trailer for "Mockingbird Lane," the Bryan Fuller pilot-turned-TV special that is a new take on the 1960s sitcom "The Munsters." There's plenty of Fuller's token visual style here, and it looks like it's a project that "Pushing Daisies" and "Dead Like Me" fans will adore.
Though it had originally been planned as a series, NBC decided not to pick up the costly pilot. Instead the network has decided to air it as a Halloween special on Friday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. ET.
"Mockingbird Lane" stars Portia de Rossi as Lily Munster, Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster, Eddie Izzard has Grandpa, Mason Cook as Eddie and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn.
